It looks like a good build. The graphics card is a good one I'm currently running the asus version of the 5770. Also did you look at the i7 930 and the 1366 chip set?

Thats a great combo that will save you some money and you get a processor thats just as good as the 870 and from what i hear overclocks better than the 870. The money you save can be put towards both the triple channel ram that the 1366 Board supports as well as bumping you up to a 58xx series graphics card. I think it would give you a little more bang for your $$.

Good selection of parts there.

The only thing is you need tri-channel RAM, RAM sticks in groups of three not two. So you'll want either 3GB, 6GB, 12GB and so on. 1600Mhz speed is fine.
